Pop Star Fergie Names Son After Guns N' Roses Frontman Axl Rose

Black Eyed Peas star Fergie gave birth to her first child yesterday (August 29th) and she and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, named their baby boy Axl after famed Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose.

Fergie does have a history with Guns N' Roses, so the baby's name isn't a complete surprise to fans. Fergie has emulated Axl in the past and worked with one of his former bandmates.

The pop singer was one of the special guests on former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's 2010 solo album and Slash joined her during the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show for a performance of the Guns N' Roses classic "Sweet Child of Mine."

Fergie also famously imitated Axl Rose's trademark serpentine dance moves when she performed on the Today show in 2008. Watch video of the Today show performance here.
